Here is today's summary of NHC computer operations:
--- Craig Mattocks

----------

TAFB:
1. ATCF - NCO has re-installed the kwrite text editor on atcfsvr2, so Craig  
restored it as the default text editor in the TAFB version of the ATCF. In  
the process, he enabled kwrite's native graphics system option to improve  
its responsiveness across the network.
HSU:
1. ATCF - When a user tries to access CPHC's web site in all-caps:
HTTP://WWW.PRH.NOAA.GOV/CPHC
as written in the final forecast advisory (TCM) for Hurricane Celia:
http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/2016/ep04/ep042016.fstadv.035.shtml?
the web page doesn't load due to a "Not Found - The requested URL /CPHC was  
not found on this server” error.
In contrast, when accessing the URL written in a mixed-case text product:
http://www.prh.noaa.gov/cphc
such as the final public advisory (TCP) for Hurricane Celia:
http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/2016/ep04/ep042016.public.035.shtml?
the web page loads fine. Several solutions to this problem (web page  
redirect, symbolic link, removing the URL from NHC's uppercase text  
products) are being considered by TSB/HSU.
Other items:
RapidScat data outage - A STAR network systems administrator made a DNS  
(domain name service) entry error yesterday at about 12 noon EDT that  
caused an outage in the 12.5 km RapidScat data on the NESDIS manati server:
http://manati.star.nesdis.noaa.gov/datasets/RSCATData.php
The entry has been corrected, but it will take about 1 day to propagate to  
all DNS servers.
